When I was 19, my extended family went on a cruise going up Canada’s coastline. My cousins are about the same age as my brothers and me, so we always have a great time together. While we were walking around the ship making spectacles of ourselves, we happened to see a sign promoting a teenage social. The event would have dancing and free food and drink, so we thought it’d be a lot of fun. I imagined myself locking eyes with a cute college-aged guy across a crowded dance floor and having a whirlwind cruise ship romance.

Unfortunately, when the much-anticipated night arrived, we found the attendees were mostly pimple-faced middle schoolers. We stuck around for about 10 minutes and then made a beeline for the door when “The Chicken Dance” came on. We still laugh about how completely age inappropriate and disappointing the teenage social turned out to be for us.
